Epidermolysis Bullosa Awareness Day
Epidermolysis Bullosa Awareness Day takes place on October 25, 2017. Epidermolysis Bullosa is a genetic condition that causes layers of the skin and internal body linings to separate. When this happens, the slightest touch can cause painful blisters and sores which have to be lanced and dressed every day.
In most cases, it is only the skin affected but in severe cases, the mouth, esophagus, intestines, teeth, nails and eyes are included.
